Help celebrate Smoke’s 19th Anniversary with the best music on the planet! Eric Alexander and Harold Mabern have added their own significant chapter to the history of music over the last 20+ years, many times at Smoke and and many times in the company of bassist John Webber. They are joined for this special occasion by jazz legend Louis Hayes on drums. JazzTimes says, “the rapport between Mabern and Alexander seems nearly telepathic.” Downbeat adds, “Eric Alexander can play the tenor saxophone—never doubt that. He has the chops, power and passion that make him one of the most blazingly bad-assed saxophonists of his generation.” And, Audiophile Audition adds, “Harold Mabern is one of our last living piano legends…His affinity for the blues, honed from Memphis, through the Windy City, and arrival in the Big Apple, make his piano playing a treat…Long live Harold Mabern.”
